Hi
I have an xml file which i get data from using the simplexml_load_file function
I then grab values and store them in variables

now the thing is that the amount of games displayed will be different

I need to grab the values from them with a while loop or something

If it where mysql i would go about using the following method

while($r=mysql_fetch_array($query))
{
$idorder=$r["idorder"];
}

How could I go about using the same type of method in this scenario?

Bear in mind my skillz are limited

not to sound funny or anything i was there

I understand how to get an exact value from an array by index

but dunno how to iterate through them

I can do it with a mysql_fetch_array

Am I missing something ?

Evidently you missed the entire page about foreach then.

its not that I just dont seem to understand how to apply it to this instance
